Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3
Focus on portability
The Tamron 28-300mm lens is now even smaller and lighter. In addition to state-of-the-art optical design that facilitates downsizing of the lens body, the mechanical design, which incorporates a highly sophisticated multi-stack-cam layout that takes up far less space, and PZD (Piezo Drive), an autofocus drive system with a simpler, more compact structure, has made it possible to reduce the overall dimensions of this lens.
Moisture-resistant construction for outdoor shooting
Moisture-resistant construction also helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.
Flower-shaped hood is supplied with the lens to shield stray light
Included as a standard accessory, the flower-shaped hood also matches the rectangular shape of the image sensor to most effectively block the interference of superfluous light rays entering from outside the borders of the image area, helping to ensure sharp, clear, flare-free images with crisp detail in the shadow areas.
The advanced optical construction of this lens includes four elements of LD (Low Dispersion) glass, three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, one Hybrid Aspherical element, one XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass element, and one element of UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass, which has greater refractive index than XR.
The full use of specialised glass elements in its design contributes to making this outstanding lens as compact and lightweight as possible, while minimising aberrations, resulting in superior image quality.
